Check Device’s Stats
Many users don’t know that it is possible to track the battery stats of wireless devices right from the laptop. If you are one of them, it is just the right time to get an idea of how it works.
To monitor these stats, you will need to go to the relevant tab just like we did in the first and second step of our previous tip. Here, you can see battery status of every accessory. Alternatively, your device’s battery should be displayed in the menu bar. In the following section of this article we will tell you how to do this.
By the way, checking the stats of your device can actually help you solve a connectivity issue. Sometimes, your Mac may not get connected simply because it is running low on battery.
One thing many users neglect is setting up simpler and quicker access to the main Bluetooth settings. This is in vain because adding it to the menu bar can save you lots of time and be quite handy. Here is how you can do it – go to the Bluetooth tab from the System Preferences once more, find a setting that allows you to show this feature in the menu bar, and tick the box to enable quick access.
